It's Trump versus Rosie: The Game
With the Battle of the Bigmouths showing no signs of abating, a new game has hit the Internet in which players can make Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell punch and kick each other for points.
Press the space bar and they unleash their secret weapons: Rosie whips Trump with a snakelike tongue; Trump clobbers Rosie with his lethal comb over.
There are trash-talking bubbles, too. "You're a hot bag of wind with bad hair," Rosie's reads. "Lowlife," Trump's declares.
Taegan Goddard's Political Wire
Welcome to the world’s first full-service conservative Internet broadcast network!
Internet video is booming. Apple’s iTunes store has sold a gazillion videos since its debut. YouTube gets more traffic than the New York Times web site. And politically-oriented video is on the rise:
- Google teamed up with Al Gore’s Current TV network to provide Google Current.
- Amazon.com broadcasts Fishbowl featuring left-wing comedian Bill Maher.
- iTunes offers a discount price for Comedy Central’s liberal Daily Show.
- AOL joined with the Huffington Post to provide Contagious Festival, a collection of conservative-bashing short movies.
These efforts have one thing in common: they are all produced by liberals for liberals.
I formed Hot Air Network, LLC, to bring ideological diversity—because we all love diversity–to the videoblogging world. And because it looked like a lot of fun. Two of the most cutting-edge bloggers on the Right have joined me in my cyberquest: video editing whiz Bryan Preston and the almighty Allah Pundit. Allah likes to think of us as a little Internet garage band. Only we’re playing in three separate home offices and a basement. But you get the idea.
Our mission at Hot Air is to:
- Expose new viewers to the revolutionary world of videoblogging, animation, and Internet broadcasting;
- Recruit dynamic, enterprising people with creative skills from across the country to help us challenge (and CONQUER!) the dinosaur broadcast media outlets;
- Laugh. Report. Laugh. Entertain. Laugh. Inform. Laugh. Make money. Did we say laugh?
So, tune in. Turn on. And drop us a tip or two or three. We’re here to fight hot air with Hot Air. Fill ‘er up.

Go Fug Yourself
1. What is this "fug"? I've never heard of it.
"Fug" comes from "fugly," which is a contraction of "fantastically ugly" (or an f-word more prurient, if you like, but we are clean and delightful young ladies who don't engage in that kind of filth, dammit).
Here's some etymology for you:
frightfully ugly; of or pertaining to something beyond the boundaries of normal unattractiveness. Ex: "That 'Kabbalists Do It Better' trucker hat is fugly."
1. A state of extreme ugliness. Ex: "The level of fug at the Video Music Awards is always hard to stomach."
2. A proper name for someone possessed of eternal heinousness, as Chloe Sevigny: "Oh look, there's Fug, looking all miserable and dour in her black turtleneck and white frilly farm dress."
The act of posting on one's blog in order to identify something excruciatingly ugly. Ex: "Hey, I am fugging Li'l Kim again for wearing only a tiny piece of cloth."
Britney Spears ~ The Official Site
It has been a while since I've addressed you personally here on my official website. The last couple of years have been quite a ride for me, the media has criticized my every move and printed a skewed perception of who I really am as a human being.Behind every decision I have made in my public life there always seems to be an apparent contradiction. I have come to terms with that which is why I usually don't pay much attention to it.
The last couple of years have been very enlightening for me and now that I've had the time to be "me", I've been able to sit down and think about where I want to go with myself as an entertainer with absolutely no strings attached. I am now more mature and feel like I am finally "free". I've been working so hard on this new album and I can't wait for you all to hear it and to go on tour again! I would like to exclusively tell you that I am working hard to release the new album sometime later this year, but the date is of course not certain yet. I look forward to coming back this year bigger and better than ever, and to also reaching out to my fans on a more personal level. I noticed today that one of my biggest fansites is shutting down soon and I want you all to know that I do understand all the reasons that went behind making that decision, and I am sad to see it closing. If I were you I'd be unhappy too if I had to read what I've been reading every day. But trust me, I get it. I know I've been far from perfect and the media has had a lot of fun exaggerating my every move, but I want you all to know that I love my fans so much, and I appreciate everything you have done for me, so Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
This girl is full of empty promises!
Despite her assertions today - posted in a letter to her fans on her official website - promising that she was going to do right by us, Britney Spears continues to live in a world full of wrong.
The hard-partying mother of two continued her wild, restless streak Thursday night.
Spears and crew hit up West Hollywood club Area, where they partied until the early morning hours.
The night before?
She went partying as well!
And she looked wrecked at club Les Deux in Hollywood on Wednesday.
We don't feel sorry for Britney any more.
Her fans are deserting her, and she's only brought it upon herself.

Montreal grandmother Hanna Tennenhaus doesn't own a computer and until recently had never heard of the popular everyman video-broadcast website YouTube.
Doesn't matter. In the last 48 hours, Tennenhaus has become the toast of the website thanks to a New Year's greeting she recorded for her family.
It's an impressive family that includes four children, 16 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren (with three more on the way.)
"YouTube? Does that have something to do with U-boats?" Tennenhaus, 83, asked with a laugh when reached by telephone yesterday.
Tennenhaus's flash fame is a testament to the unpredictability of cyberspace, where, inexplicably, an otherwise unremarkable one-minute New Year's greeting from Grandma can surf its way to stardom.
Even ABC's television show Good Morning America has called to inquire about the segment.
As of midnight, her greeting was still being featured on the YouTube home page and had been watched 123,984 times.
The segment was listed in the site's Most Viewed and Top Favourites sections.
The video begins with Tennenhaus greeting her grandson at her front door before sitting down and sharing her New Year's wishes for her family and the world.
The clip had received 650 responses.
"Aww. I'd Love It If My Grandma Just Called," wrote Radiancexox in one post.
The clip was taped and posted by Tennenhaus's grandson, Shmuel, over the holidays. The 26-year-old Florida-based Internet-marketing consultant was visiting Montreal and showed up on his grandmother's doorstep with her New York Times in one hand and a mini-video recorder in the other.
"I didn't even have enough time to put on makeup," Tennenhaus said. "I spoke with Shmuel (yesterday) and I'm overwhelmed by the response. I'm quite shy actually and don't really like being in the limelight that much."

Japanese New Year celebration
| A troupe of dancers in skin-colored body suits had Japanese national broadcaster NHK apologizing to viewers of its New Year's Eve music special for what seemed to be a full-scale Janet Jackson-style wardrobe malfunction.|
The dancers, who all appeared to be topless and wore skimpy bikini-style bottoms and feathered head-dresses, covered the stage during a performance by singer DJ OZMA, prompting about 250 viewers to phone in and complain.
"The dancers were wearing body suits, but we apologize for any misunderstanding," a presenter announced toward the end of the 57th annual "Red and White Song Contest".
"I guess it looked a bit too real," local media quoted the singer as telling reporters after the show, which regularly tops viewer ratings on New Year's Eve in Japan.

THE LIST: What's In and Out for 2007 (washingtonpost.com)
Suddenly limits, just a hint of limits! The sheeple start taking the
computers out of their kids' rooms. Just enough of them ignore the
Decider. They unanimously reject the Gap's skinny black pants out of
simple respect for the ghost of Audrey Hepburn. They discover new
frontiers in shame via YouTube and then look askance. Our sense of
justice finally leads somewhere: Britney expunges Kevin; Jim kisses
Pam; your husband finally realizes that phone in his ear makes him
look like a dork.
You go outside, kick off those ill-thought Crocs, and birdies sing
fleeting songs of $2 gas. That slight rustling sound? It's millions
of teenagers pulling up their pants an inch -- the new look. A prim,
white-haired man in a pinstriped suit soothingly yet sternly commands
an army of young fashionistas to "make it work," and the weird thing
is, they do. Make it work has somehow auf'd stay the course, and you
resolve to go on living, and immediately set about making your List.
Post staff writer (and "List" czar) Hank Stuever will be online
Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2007 at noon to discusses the Style section's annual
compendium of what's in and what's out.
